At Guildex, Ellis Clark Trains and Darstaed announced their next O gauge model will be The Stanier Class 5 4-6-0, AKA The "Black 5"

Expected Q1 of 2021 and priced at £949 for the DC/DCC Ready versions, and £1,199 for the DCC sound/synchro smoke versions.

The model will cover the long firebox version from the batch of 227 locomotives built by Armstrong Whitworth in 1936/7. This model, produced by Darstaed and
available exclusively through Ellis Clark Trains, promises to boast a very impressive specification.

preserved examples.

To ensure this model meets our high standards, they will all be fitted with state of the art ABC gearboxes, Maxon motors and for the DCC versions, Zimo sound systems.
